Posting through the holidays is always a start and stop proposition. Post is always the part of the schedule that gets cramped because that's the part of the process that's shoved up against the release date. So when everybody else takes a little extra time to make their part of the production as good as they can... it's post who has to make up for it. But although it's routine for the guys to work late and on weekends, holiday breaks are planned well in advance so you either plan for it or use weaker or unfamiliar talent.
So I'll update whenever there's something interesting but it's going to be fairly erratic. So here's what's happening these days: I just got off the phone with Christopher Drake who is scoring the opening sequence of Blood and Iron. He's already has several sequences completed but now that he has the complete, locked picture he can start filling in from beginning to end. We also discussed tweaks to the opening sequence which will be a little more ornate than just a Japanese scroll. Otis Van Osten and the crew at Audio Circus are moving at hyper speed until they take off for some Thanksgiving turkey.
The DVD for Sword of Storms is all but finished and will include a trailer for the second movie. Cool menus and a really nice DVD Rom package that let's you search the script and the San Diego panel transcript which ties you directly to the part of the movie or panel that's being discussed.
Other than that, I'm ramping up for a second, non-Hellboy property that will overlap my work here. Maybe it will get its own blog! Finally, Mike and I are in the middle of the story for the third Hellboy so all is cool and good. Happy Thanksgiving for those celebrating and drive safe! -- Tad
